PLEASE WELCOME Rev. Chuck Kleinhesselink who will lead us in worship this morning. Rev. Kleinhesselink is the retired pastor of Nooksack Valley Reformed Church and currently on staff at First Reformed Church in Lynden.

FAREWELL CELEBRATION: Remember our farewell celebration for Pastor Steve, Mandy, Isabelle, Aiden and Carolyn on Wednesday, 7 pm, at the first kitchen in Berthusen Park. Drinks and dessert will be provided. Please bring lawn chairs. We will have games for the children. You are encouraged to share a memory of the Van Noorts that evening or if you prefer, write a note and place it in the can by today.
FAREWELL SERVICE: Please join us next week for Pastor Steve’s farewell service. We will also have presentation of Bibles to our Children and Worship graduates: Bradley Hiemstra, Cy De Jong and Carolyn Van Noort.
INTERIM PASTOR: The Bethel Council is pleased to announce that Pastor Ken Boonstra has agreed to serve as our part-time Interim Pastor for 4-6 months beginning September 1. His responsibilities will include Preaching and Congregational Care. Pastor Ken just retired after serving Immanuel CRC in Ripon, CA for 10 years. Before that, he served the Willoughby CRC in Langley BC. He and his wife Anita, and daughter Erica are relocating to Bellingham. As they search for a new home, they may be living in the parsonage. The Boonstras also have a daughter, Jesse, living in Seattle. We praise God for His Providence as He directs Pastor Steve and family into new areas of ministry while continuing to provide Pastoral leadership for Bethel CRC.
GUEST PASTORS: Mitchell Senti will lead us in worship on August 1 and on August 8 and 15 we will have Pastor Aaron Walters.
